Percentile 95 (percentile95)
This operation returns the highest value below the 95th percentile of a specified column for each grouping occurrence using linear interpolation.
How does it work in the search window?
Before being able to perform this operation, you have to group your data. Be aware that the columns used as arguments for the grouping operation will not be available to select as arguments for the aggregation operation.
After grouping the data, select Aggregation in the search window toolbar, then select the Percentile 95 operation. You need to specify one argument:
The data type of the aggregated values is integer.
demo.ecommerce.data table, we want to get the highest value of the 95th percentile of the number of bytes in each 5-minute period. Before aggregating the data, the table must be grouped in 5-minute intervals. Then we will perform the aggregation using the Percentile 95 operation.
The arguments needed for the Percentile 95 operation are:
- Source → bytesTransferred column
Click Aggregate function and you will see the following result:
How does it work in LINQ
Group your data using the following structure:
as... to add the new column that will show the aggregated values. This is the syntax for the Percentile 95 operation:
See Build a query using LINQ to learn more about grouping and aggregating your data using the LINQ language.
You can copy the following LINQ script and try the example above on the
from demo.ecommerce.data group every 5m every 5m select percentile95(bytesTransferred) as percentile95_bytes
